Culinary Tricks For the Kitchen

We’re always on the lookout for good tips and tricks to use in the kitchen to save us time and effort when we’re whipping up a meal for our family and friends. We’ve compiled this list of our favourite tips and tricks you can use every day to make cooking less stressful.

1. Do all of your prep work the night before.

If you can prepare any veg or sauces the night before, it’s a good idea to do it. This will save you time when you’re cooking by reducing the tasks you have to complete quickly while food is warming up.

2. If you can use fresh ingredients

While this might not seem like a trick, if you use fresh ingredients that have more flavour you’ll have to do less to the overall dish to get the final flavour you want.

3. Read the recipe carefully

Trying a new dish for the first time? Read the recipe through twice to make sure you completely understand what you’re doing. There’s nothing worse than getting to the final stages of a recipe and then realising you’ve missed a crucial step.

No matter what you’re cooking, make sure that your kitchen is ready for anything. Ensure that the sides are cleaned and you have ample space to work.
